Directions, parking, and building access
I’m in the NEW Urban WORKLoft building at the intersection of Airport Way South and S. Horton Street, and the Rainier Brewery with the big red “R” is just north of me. Getting into the building can be somewhat of a puzzle box and things don’t always work the way they are supposed to, so your patience and a sense of humor will serve you well.
My office is located at 3250 Airport Way South, Suite 743. Here’s a little video to illustrate the description that follows: The garage entries are on South Horton street; the first one goes underground and the next one is just after the loading dock elevators and before the Storage office. There are six Guest spots labeled on the right side of the first floor garage, and three straight ahead in the underground garage, with three more around the corner. Parking is free. There is also free parking under the Spokane street viaduct or on South Horton or Stevens Street (see MAP). *They are ticketing for parking in non-guest spots in the garage, so please don’t park in anything not labeled “guest”.*
The pedestrian entrance is on Airport Way South, look for the double doors with the call box outside of them. There is often a sandwich board out on the sidewalk in front. This door is terrible. It only works half the time, so I recommend walking around to the garage entries to save yourself the frustration.
The elevators that face South Horton Street are for Storage only. Office elevators are accessed through the lobby, either from Airport Way or the West side of either garage. There is a call box outside of those doors, find me there and call up for entry. Elevators will not allow you up unless you have been buzzed in or someone with a key card helps you. If you are more than 5-10 minutes early for your appointment you can let yourself into the lobby with the code 07743 to wait, but you will have to either call me from those outside callboxes or the kiosk in the lobby to activate the elevators when it’s time. Please do not call up more than 5-10 minutes before your appointment time, as I may still be working with another client. Once I buzz you up, the elevator should allow you to push number 7 and come on up. I am at the South end of the building all the way at the very end of the hall. If it’s your first time here, I will come and meet you at the elevator.
There are bike racks in the garage on the ground floor (not underground) for your convenience.
Public Transportation (from Pioneer Square)
Google Maps does a good job of letting you know your bus options, and the Metro Trip Planner shows rides that take only 7-12 minutes from downtown, some of which will drop you right in front of the building and others near the Spokane Street stop at the end of the SODO Busway, an eight-minute walk.
